Offered: Knit Cheshire Book Cat by Devon Monk

What You Are Bidding On:

Cheshire Book Cat

“Oh, you can't help that,' said the cat. 'We're all mad here.”
--Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland 

This Cheshire Book Cat was hand-knit by Devon Monk and is filled with glass pebbles. Why? Well, it makes him the perfect weight to hold open books, secure maps against strong breezes, or clunk a fellow-adventurer across the noggin if the need should arrive. Do you know what this grinning feline has in common with a raven or a writing desk? No? Well, perhaps if you have him for your own, you shall someday tell me.

Minimum Bid: 


Geographical Restrictions: 

Will mail internationally, via rabbit hole
